Chess Class

So part of Little Miss’ online chess assignment last spring was that she needed to play a few matches against different opponents.

I was one of her opponents.

As you can see, we both had a slight handicap for at least part of the match, but I remain undefeated by my kids.

Visual Arts Contest

School events in the post-covid era are still a little lacking during the 2021-2022 school year. Fully masked and vaccinated, Little Miss braved an art competition though.

And she was awarded two “Superior” ratings and one “Excellent” rating for her entries.

Basically the top marks she could get without then being sent to the state level competition!

Egg Coloring 2022

It was a very busy but fun Easter this last year. For some reason I feel like attributes were rushed but at the same time it feels a  little “less” this year. Maybe because TJ wasn’t with us. I mean, he stopped by, but it was the first family holiday that came about where he was fully and officially moved out.

They still got to show off their creations though.

Monopolizing Time

New Year’s day usually consists of sleeping in and then gaming.

This year was no exception as we enter 2022’s pictures.

Thunderer fell out pretty early and Superman wanted to play his new Metroid Dread game he got for Christmas. I can’t recall at this point but I think I had just recently fallen out due to all those hotels in the corner.

Little Miss, TJ, and Newbie were duking it out though.

While this may not have been how the game ended, she was quite proud of how much she was able to accumulate before being whittled down by only having one monopoly.

TJ, ultimately, was the winner of this round.

No Way Home

So just a couple months since the physical release I’m celebrating here when we went to actually see No Way Home in the theatre.

Naturally we were still using masks as not everyone (Newbie) was vaccinated yet, but by going a few weeks after release during their Christmas break we made sure to minimize covid contact as much as possible.

I’m pretty sure the girls just didn’t want to bother smiling for the picture so they put their masks up instead.

It was a fantastic end to the three movie establishment arc of Holland’s Spiderman portrayal and I look forward to whatever comes next.

(As I’ve scheduled this the Love and Thunder trailer came out just this week and Multiverse of Madness was still unrated to give folks a hint as to when I actually scheduled this post.)
